Even for Keyboards Thin Is In

first_imgNovember 13, 2009 1 min read Register Now » Consider Microsoft’s new Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 the Kate Moss of computer accessories: It’s so thin, you may want to feed it a sandwich. The keyboard was developed to address the growing demand for portability, particularly among business users, and the spread of Bluetooth: According to an IMS Research forecast, 55 percent of notebook PCs will ship with Bluetooth by this time next year. The feather-light 6000 is just a few millimeters thicker than an AAA battery, making it the slimmest keyboard ever to emerge from the Redmond, Wash., brain trust. It’s also supermodel-stylish, with a streamlined, tapered-down design created around Microsoft’s wave-like Comfort Curve layout. No less notable, the Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 addresses the glaring absence of number pads on notebooks and netbooks by featuring a stand-alone Bluetooth Number Pad that can be used with the 6000 or by itself (it even boasts its own carrying case for added portability). The Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 is $89.95. Microsoft is selling the Bluetooth Number Pad on its own for $44.95–in the event your accessories budget is a bit thin as well.

Tech Entrepreneurs Sign Declaration of Internet Freedom Petition

first_img Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now min read Enroll Now for Free July 3, 2012 salajean / Shutterstock.comA new effort to ward off federal internet antipiracy laws is gaining traction among technology entrepreneurs and organizations around the world.Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of social news site reddit, and Josh Levy, a campaign manager at internet and media-advocacy site Free Press, have helped create the “Declaration of Internet Freedom,” a movement against proposed legislation that threaten free sharing of information online. Examples of bills that are on the group’s radar include the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA), the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) and the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA).Since it launched yesterday, more than 100 people and organizations have signed the declaration. Among them are internet pioneer Vint Cerf and Cheezburger Inc. founder Ben Huh.  Related: A SOPA About-Face for Members of CongressThe Declaration of Internet Freedom is hinged on five main principles:Expression. Don’t censor the Internet.Access. Promote universal access to fast and affordable networks.Openness. Keep the internet an open network where everyone is free to connect, communicate, write, read, watch, speak, listen, learn, create and innovate.Innovation. Protect the freedom to innovate and create without permission. Don’t block new technologies, and don’t punish innovators for their users’ actions.Privacy. Protect privacy and defend everyone’s ability to control how their data and devices are used.SOPA and PIPA, which aimed to punish “rogue” websites that publish or sell pirated content, were effectively sidelined in Congress this year after several online and in-person protests. The groups behind both bills pledged to continue their efforts to find a solution that has wider approval.Related: The Battle Against SOPA Is Far From OverSimilar proposals have also attracted the wrath of internet advocates. ACTA is a multination agreement that aims to force internet-service providers worldwide to act as “internet police.” CISPA, meanwhile, is a proposed law in the U.S. that would call for the sharing of certain online information between tech companies and the U.S. government.”These battles remind us how fragile the free and open Internet is — and make it clear that if we don’t fight to protect it, no one will,” Levy wrote in a blog post.Will you support the Declaration of Internet Freedom? Tell us why or why not in the comments below. This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.last_img read more
